Our Most Popular Programmes
Bottom line matters. And bottom line today is about keeping overheads down, whilst maintaining the skill set.
Calm People can audit the stress levels, apply the appropriate programmes to the most stressed areas, and show clear impact measurement (see case studies). We will show you how to handle conflict, stress, and unhealthy emotional responses which will build your teams and show your staff you value their contribution.
The courses can be run in-house, in half day / full day sessions, or off-site to suit your business needs. If we want the most skilled people in our organisations to stay, we have to ensure they have the resilience to handle the pressure. No matter how many technical and professional skills they have, if they can’t resolve conflict, keep a perspective, and look after their inner resources, you will have presenteeism, high sickness rates, and poor retention of your most valued resource.
These programmes are specifically designed for your organisation, so call to discuss requirements. Our experienced facilitators have worked with a range of organisations and will find the right package for you or design a bespoke workshop.

Improving Efficiency Through Honest Communication
A 2 day team based workshop for teams that are either in conflict or who actively avoid conflict and thus lose efficiency.
This workshop gives delegates and teams the understanding of themselves and others when heading towards conflict. It highlights the parts of conflict that we are responsible for and how we can use those for personal development. The final part of the picture is the team contracting with each other that they will, going forward, have regular healthy conflict thus improving team dynamics and efficiency.
This workshop comprehensively deals with 2 of the first two dysfunctions of a team as developed by Howard Lencioni in his book The 5 Dysfunctions of a Team. The first two being “Trust one another” and “Work through conflict.” The best teams disagree regularly and if there is no conflict they are too comfortable.
3 Day Workshops
Calm Execs Resilience Retreat
Calm Execs Resilience Retreat is retreat style workshop over 2½ – 3 days which delivers leading edge resilience techniques and strategies to the delegates in a private, confidential and exclusive environment conducive to learning.
This workshop is designed for senior executives in the business and was designed after a piece of research carried out by Calm Execs which showed the following:
– Senior executives do in general bear proportionately more stress and pressure than their teams.
– Senior executives are likely to take notice and care of their team’s emotional resilience but less likely to take care of their own.
– Any work they choose to do in this area of personal development is unlikely to be with their teams for fear of appearing vulnerable.
In other organisations implementation of the Calm Execs Resilience Retreat workshop is for the senior executives in their “talented top 100” and is considered to be a reward and an investment in top talent.
